What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The main event will be the 36th an­ nual conference of the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians Oct. 4-7, spon­ sored by the Salish and Kootenai Tribes, at the Cavanaugh’s Inn in Kalispell. Also in town during the week will be the Portland Indian Health Board (meet- ing on Monday and Tuesday), a special hearing about Chemawa Indian School of Salem, Ore., the Indian Child Welfare Association, and the Indian Trade Asso­ ciation (no details on those latter two organizations’ plans). The theme of this year’s ATNI con­ ference is “Maintaining Our Homelands and Traditions Through Effective Tribal Self-Governance”. Delegates from some 40 tribes in North America will meet to discuss the past year’s prog­ ress in five major areas identified in the 1987 “plan of action”: cultural affairs, economic development and employ­ ment, human and social services, natu­ ral resources and the environment, and Tribal governance. They’ll also be talking about a variety of current issues, such as the zoning and taxation controversy on the Yakima Reservation, IHS eligibility, increasing anti-Indian sentiment in parts of the country, hunting and fishing, and the 1990 Census project Native Americans from British Co­ lumbia and Alberta, Canada, have been invited to expand the scope of the dis­ cussions to an international level. A number of special events are on the agenda in addition to the panel discus­ sions, committee meetings and displays of Indian arts and crafts and Tribal busi­ ness booths.
